After 20 years of selling fine jewelry and fashion accessories at luxury retailers, Charmaine Marshall is turning heads with her own bold and daring collection of jewelry designs.
Her clients are the center of attention when they wear Charmaine's eye-catching bracelets, necklaces and earrings. This “wearable art” is anything but understated. Her hand-crafted designs draw on the colors and textures of nature, incorporating rare stones, feathers, wood, antique African brass, coral and other exotic elements.
Charmaine's ability to tastefully blend rough-hewn materials into fine jewelry worthy of a museum display case is founded, in part, on her extensive industry background, which includes certifications from the Gemological Institute of America in Diamonds and Diamond Grading.
Her expertise was complemented by years of customer service at leading retailers such as Tiffany & Co., De Beers Diamond Jewelers, William Noble and Neiman Marcus, where she learned the jewelry market from the perspective of a discerning clientele.
